My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

From the time I was 6 years old I remember being totally fascinated by medicine as I frequently visited (or escaped to) a clinic next to my grandparents’ home. As a primary care internist my goal and passion has been to partner with my patients and deliver quality medical services in a highly personal and compassionate manner. For over 30 years of practice, I have enjoyed the privilege and responsibility of being the primary care physician to so many wonderful patients. I feel very grateful and blessed for this confidence and the wealth of knowledge and experience it has provided to me.

I have decided to change my current practice to a more personalized model of adult primary care medicine, concentrating on wellness and prevention, yet also engaging in early detection and intensive management of multiple conditions and diseases. Over the last 12 years, I have received additional training in functional-integrative medicine combining expertise from both traditional internal medicine and functional-integrative medicine into my practice. I strongly believe that combining expertise in both of these areas of medicine continues to make me a more complete physician.

As a result, I have affiliated with MDVIP, a leader in personalized wellness and prevention with a very impressive record. This welcomed change will allow me to focus on getting patients of any age to desired states of optimal health and enjoy new levels of vitality. In order to accomplish this, I will be limiting my practice in order to provide patients the time and resources to focus on their well-being.

I am very excited for this new direction toward precision and predictive, evidence-based medical care that will make our goal of reaching optimal health and vitality a reality. I hope that you will join me on this amazing and exciting new journey.

I cannot begin to say enough about my experiences with Dr. Tamayo. He is truly the personification of what a doctor should be. I have had many doctors in my lifetime and I have never met one more caring, dedicated and thorough as Dr. Tamayo. He absolutely goes above and beyond for his patient. The time he spends explaining the results of my physicals is invaluable and his referrals to… See more

Dr. T has always shown an abundance of compassion and care especially in the care of my husband. We had a rough year last year medically speaking and he helped get us through it all! His office staff is super and always friendly and caring. And his office just happens to be in our neighborhood too! We need more doctors like Dr. T in all fields of medicine!

Dr. Raul Tamayo is wonderful and actually listens to what I am saying! I was out of town for a month and had come down with a serious chest something. He returned my call the same day, listened to my rasppy voice, my cough, and knew my history with bronchitis.

Dr. Tamayo takes the time we need, and always is able to help us; whether it is a quick response to our text, or if we need something more such as an office visit. Extremely thorough as he goes through our annual physical with great detail, and is willing to discuss most anything with us, giving him a better insight as to who we are and how he can help in the present and going forward.… See more

When we moved to Florida full time, we chose Dr Raul Tomayo as our physician. In the very first visit, he didn’t like something he heard in my husbands chest. He sent him for further tests. The cardiologist discovered a bicuspid aortic valve that should have been a tricuspid valve. There was significant stenosis that required valve replacement. The cardiologist said if not discovered, my… See more

from Susan in FL January 31, 2024 for Raul E. Tamayo, MD

For decades (I'm 76) I have had a mystery condition that presents as an acute viral illness that just won't go away. The flu-like symptoms persist sometimes for months and are severe enough to prevent me from having an active life. Over the years I have consulted many physicians, all of whom fall into two categories. Some didn't take my symptoms seriously; others, if they… See more
